Noble Corp Plc

Business Description

We are a leading provider of diversified services for the oil and gas industry. We perform contract drilling services with our fleet of 57 offshore drilling units located in key markets worldwide. This fleet consists of 13 semisubmersibles (including five Noble EVA-4000(TM) semisubmersibles), three dynamically positioned drillships, 38 jackup rigs and three submersibles. Approximately 75 percent of the fleet is currently deployed in international markets, principally including the Middle East, Mexico, the North Sea, Brazil, West Africa, India and the Mediterranean Sea. We provide technologically advanced drilling-related products and services designed to create value for our customers. We also provide labor contract drilling services, well site and project management services, and engineering services.

Our long-standing business strategy continues to be the active expansion of our international offshore drilling and deepwater capabilities through acquisitions, rig upgrades and modifications, and the deployment of assets in important geological areas.

Although the deepwater drilling market is currently experiencing near-term softness due to an increased supply of deepwater rigs, both the level of drilling activity and the number of announced discoveries and related development programs in water depths greater than 5,000 feet have increased substantially in recent years, thus increasing the demand for rigs capable of drilling in these water depths. As such, in recent years we have focused on increasing the number of rigs in our fleet capable of deepwater offshore drilling.

We typically employ each drilling unit under an individual contract. Although the final terms of the contracts are the result of our negotiations with our customers, many contracts are awarded based upon competitive bidding.

Competition in contract drilling involves numerous factors, including price, rig availability and suitability, experience of the workforce, efficiency, condition of equipment, operating integrity, reputation, industry standing and customer relations. We believe that we compete favorably with respect to all of these factors. Competition is primarily on a regional basis and may vary significantly by region at a particular time. Demand for offshore drilling equipment also depends on the exploration and development programs of oil and gas producers, which in turn are influenced by the financial condition of such producers, by general economic conditions and prices of oil and gas, and, from time to time, by political considerations and policies.
